Long time no see!
Let’s start this new beginning with something fresh, simple, healthy, delicious and easy to prepare.
Pak Choi belongs to the Cabbage family and has many different names; bok choy, horse’s ear, Chinese celery cabbage, white mustard cabbage, Vietnamese cabbage, pe-tsai and so on… you get the idea. Everyone is in love with it 🙂
….for a good reason as it is very low in calories and a great source of various minerals, vitamins and anti-oxidants.
So next time you are in the supermarket and in need of some fresh greens think of this little hero.
Who does not know the classic “sweet and sour” dish from the Asian restaurant just around the corner??! I am convinced that everyone loves it… I know I definitely do 100%. The interesting thing is that no matter where you go in the world, where you travel and what cities you visit there is always sweet and sour to be found. However, sweet and sour varies very dramatically in color and consistency depending on where you are! I had once a PINK very watery sauce… Now I am not sure I should be telling you this ahaha. Anyways the one I am used to is orangy-brown in color and is a thick and juicy sauce. It just happens to be my father’s recipe!
How do tacos sound for dinner? Good? I love love love fajitas, enchiladas and tacos
A lot of people have started talking about using cauliflower as carb substitute for their low-carb lifestyle. What have they been disguising it as? Simple, cauliflower can pretty much take the role of anything you can think of, just to name a few examples… here it goes: breadsticks, buns, pizza crust, quiche, couscous, rice, tortilla, bagels, hash browns, nachos and many more!
Isn’t it amazing?
Feel like something fresh, light and tasty? Then these Vietnamese Spring Rolls might be just what you need!
While I was travelling through South -East Asia with friends we took a cooking class in Vietnam. That’s when I fell in love with these rolls. What makes them so special is that they are super healthy and super delicious… BIG TIME!
What do they consist of? Mostly vegetables 🙂
As much as I would love to take credit for this salad recipe I cannot. I had the honor to taste this explosion of flavors at a dinner in Zurich. Being half Serbian I love my cabbage salad! To have it prepared in another way made me sceptic at first. However, one bite into the meal all I could think about it how to make the other delicious food on my plate miraculously appear on my boyfriends plate so that I could only eat this salad.
Something I have come to appreciate and like a lot lately is Tahini. It is super fast to make and pretty amazing.
Made from sesame seeds and some olive oil Tahini is a nut butter originated from the Middle Eastern and Eastern cuisine.
Tahini is not only delicious it can also benfit your body quite a bit. Having a lot of calcium and protein it is a great addition for people who do not or hardly eat meat. Furthermore, there are enough fatty healthy acids (Omega 3 and 6) present to make Tahini one of your go to products pretty fast!
If I could choose I would probably eat almost daily asian inspired food. I love curry, coconut, sticky rice and all the other delicious aromas and igredients asian cuisines use.
This coconut fishsoup is a recipe that my family has been doing for quite some years now. And let me tell you it is DELICIOUS! It is so simple to make but a wonderful experience while eating. Aromas of lemon grass, ginger and curcuma will fill your kitchen.
The important thing to realise is that when cooking asian, not everybody’s tastebuds are the same.
